Dear barnita,


Consider the carbonate ion, CO32-


carbon (C) has four valence electrons x 1 carbon = 4 e-
oxygen (O) has six valence electrons x 3 oxygens = 18 e-
The ion has an overall negative two charge so we add 2 e- to give a total of 24 e- to be placed in the Lewis structure.


This affords a bond order for the carbon - oxygen bond of 1 1/3. (4 bonds averaged over three structures.)

The number of bonded electrons pairs that are present in octahedral SF 6 molecules will be?
 
 
bonded electrons pairs that are present in octahedral SF 6 molecules will be 6 bcoz each fluorine atom is bonded to sulphur atoms in sf6 sulphur has 0 lone pair approve if useful

Why is equitorial bond angle in sf4> ch2=sf4 (double bond in b/w), trying to understand it through bent rule but unable to so far...
 
 
SF4 has a trigonal bipyramidal structure with lone pair of electron in the equatorial position.The F-S-F bond angle is 101degree. In the trigonal-bipyramidal species H2C= SF4 the H atoms are...

Yes ,you are correct but actually what i want to tell is that greater s character of lone pair leads to lowering of equatorial bond angle(F-S-F) from 1200 to 101degree.This is due to...

Sir, bond angle is directly proportional to s character and therefore inversely proportio al to p character?
